New dietary ‘cures’ for diabetes are constantly splashed across the pages of newspapers and magazines, and increasingly through the avenue of social media and blogs. But do these latest dietary fads offer any real benefit to people with diabetes? Tim will explore some of the popular dietary trends such as Paleo and low-carb diets promoted for diabetes management and uncover if there is much credence to the claims.
1. Describe the history of nutrition recommendations for diabetes
2. Appraise the evidence for popular diets in managing diabetes
3. Establish the common themes behind the principles of dietary management of diabetes.
